Obama to Renew Muslim Outreach, Right Wing Blogs Freak Out

Shoot first, reach out never

It’s one phony outrage after another for the right wing blogosphere; today they’re all lathered up into a fine frothy rage because President Obama is going to renew Muslim outreach.

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama is preparing a fresh outreach to the Muslim world in coming days, senior U.S. officials say, one that will ask those in the Middle East and beyond to reject Islamic militancy in the wake of Osama bin Laden’s death and embrace a new era of relations with the U.S.

Mr. Obama is preparing to deliver that message in a wide-ranging speech, perhaps as early as next week, these officials say. The president intends to argue that bin Laden’s death, paired with popular uprisings sweeping North Africa and the Middle East, signal that the time has come to an end when al Qaeda could claim to speak for Muslim aspirations.

This is anathema to the right, who are stuck in a fantasy war with the entire religion of Islam. You have to ask: if they’re so opposed to diplomacy with the Muslim world, what’s their alternative? Right wing bloggers are so bigoted and deranged over this issue, the only solution they can possibly embrace is violence and war.

Goleta Park Our Sunday GetawayWe drove 80 miles up to this favorite spot. The weather was nice, the tides accommodating, and the waves calm. Too calm. Instead of ocean and beach, we shot wildlife in the brackish creek.
